So, I've been catching up on the AC series (on PC), and just finished Revelations. It was a bit slow to get started and the story seemed pulled out of thin air, and the mechanics were a chore, but I wound up loving it as a story piece because of how it dealt with both Altair and Ezio. I'm trying to decide whether to get into AC III, and wondering if anybody here can help me decide if it's worth getting straightaway, or better to wait until the price drop. - I'm a very paranoid, stealthy player. How hard is it to manage notoriety? I hated managing it in the first place, but it was even worse in Revelations without posters everywhere. - In Revelations, I hated Den Defense, so my only alternative was to train my assassins vigorously... which was a chore in its own right, because Mediterranean Defense broke my immersion way too often. Are there constraining elements like that in AC III, or are the minigames more optional like they were in AC2? - I've heard complaints about Connor, but I'm wondering if that's just because people missed Ezio. Is he whiny, or is he more of a strong silent type? - I've heard climbing is less clunky. How's the fighting? Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of games being really difficult, and more about the world experience. - Tyranny of King Washington... worth getting?
